When it comes to moving a car from one place to a distant location, car transport services seem to be the best option. Auto transportation is not only safe but also cost effective if vehicle needs to be moved to a greater distance. However, it requires you to consider a number of things to ensure car will be transported safely. While you look to hire an auto transport company for moving your car, make sure you get the answers of following questions from your mover to know entire process.
Are you a registered mover?
Over the past few years, there is growing number of complaints filed against scams operating in shipping industry. Even though USDOT, FMCSA and law enforcement agencies have taken control of it but still there are few fraudsters looking to make use of uneducated customers. Therefore, to ensure your mover is not a scam, asking about its registration is important. All companies are required to licensee with US Department of Transportation under a special DOT or MC number. You must ask your mover to provide you its DOT registration number. If it does not, avoid doing business with it. It could be a scam.
What services do you offer?
Not all companies offer same type of services. Some companies may not be willing to offer enclosed auto shipping and door-to-door auto shipping. Therefore, you must make sure the company offers the sort of services you need to get your car shipped.
